We Want Your Input!

(Updated 1/9/2019: Zoom meeting information added at the end)

An ILAGO workgroup has revised and updated the existing Information Literacy Outcomes and Criteria for the AAOT General Education curriculum (found in Appendix E) to better align with the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy. After an extensive drafting and open comment period, we are ready to share the final draft: Outcomes and Criteria for Transferable General Education Courses in Oregon: Information Literacy.

Currently, most examples of Information Literacy are from the Writing course sequence, we need to demonstrate IL teaching and learning in other areas of the Gen Ed curriculum (from Cultural Literacy, Mathematics, Sciences, Social Sciences, and more). Do you have examples of Information Literacy in a discipline area that you’d like to include? Add them to this working draft of Information Literacy Criteria for AAOT Discipline Areas. We also welcome suggestions for language revisions for clarity or context.

Next steps:

  • Continue to seek endorsement from each of the four-year transfer institutions
  • Plan to submit these to the Higher Education Coordinating Commission in early 2019
  • Host an open forum for feedback and questions on January 15, 2019 from 11am to 1pm (link to online meeting room forthcoming).

This effort is an example of Information Literacy advocacy for Oregon students, and we hope you’ll join in!

OLA Preconference: Metacognition and Reading Strategies

Teaching librarians! See this great opportunity:

ACRL-Oregon and the OLA Library Instruction Round Table (LIRT) are co-sponsoring a preconference session at this year’s Oregon Library Association Conference in Eugene, OR that will be of interest to teaching librarians across the state!  You can sign up for an OLA preconference even if you’re not planning to attend the full OLA Conference (and only pay the $55 for the preconference)!

Wednesday, April 18th 1pm-5pm

Portland Community College librarian (and ILAGO board member) Pam Kessinger will lead a panel along with faculty from PCC’s Developmental Education program to explore Metacognition and Reading Strategies to Bridge Students Toward Inquiry. Librarians will learn how to use the Reading Apprenticeship framework as well as our own ACRL Framework for Information Literacy to develop meaningful information literacy instruction and student reflection. This session is co-sponsored with the Library Instruction Round Table.

After the preconference session, join your ACRL colleagues from 5:00-7:00pm for the ACRL-Oregon Reception at the First National Taphouse. We hope to see you there!
